   Oct-11-18 Epishin vs Short, 2002 (replies)
dumbgai: White's extra bishop and knight can't save his poor king.
   Oct-08-18 43rd Chess Olympiad (2018) (replies)
dumbgai: Can't quite agree with CG's description of the event: <The 43rd Chess Olympiad in Batumi, Georgia has just concluded, with China taking double gold by edging out the USA on a tiebreak in the Open section, as well as dominating the Women's section.> China didn't quite dominate ...
   Oct-08-18 A Karayev vs A J Datu, 2008 (replies)
dumbgai: Black should have kept playing until he lost every single piece.
   Oct-05-18 J Baules vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
dumbgai: To be fair Naka faced some pretty strong opponents, even on board 3. Aside from this game, his opponents had an average rating of 2631. Still definitely a bad tournament for him, though.
   Oct-05-18 43rd Chess Olympiad (Women) (2018) (replies)
dumbgai: The Russian women really did themselves in by losing 2 matches in the first 6 rounds, including to the much lower ranked Uzbekistan team.
   Oct-05-18 Anand vs Ivanchuk, 1996 (replies)
dumbgai: That's a deep positional sac. White gives up an exchange but achieves a bind. The knight on b6 and pawn on d5 prevent black from developing his pieces, and he's forced to give back the material (and then some) to free himself.
   Sep-28-18 N Pogonina vs N Nadirjanova, 2018
dumbgai: The decisive game in an early upset where Uzbekistan defeated Russia, 2.5-1.5.
   Sep-28-18 Nimzowitsch vs Ed. Lasker, 1910 (replies)
dumbgai: Edward Lasker was hardly a "weaker opponent"
   Sep-20-18 T Chapman vs Kasparov, 2001 (replies)
dumbgai: The worst two pawns to lose would be the f and g pawns, as black. After 1. e4 youíre already facing the threat of Qh5 mate which is not easily stopped since you canít play ...g6 and Nf6 runs into e5. In fact you might already be dead.
   Sep-20-18 Kotronias vs Xiu Deshun, 2011 (replies)
dumbgai: <mel gibson: What an amazing game. The Black Queen got too greedy taking all those pawns - letting the b file open up for White's Rook was the killer.> Not really. As others have pointed out, black was winning until 15...Be6.
